The Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder is impressive on loan away from Molineux and feels he is ‘getting better and better’.
Wolverhampton Wanderers academy graduate Connor Ronan has provided an update on his loan spell at Slovakian side Dunajska Streda, in conversation with RTE.
The 21-year-old Molineux youngster has come a long way over the past year, putting aside his disappointing loan spell at Walsall to become a fan favourite at the Slovakian Fortuna Liga outfit.
Ronan made 14 club appearances last season for Dunajska, helping them secure a spot in the Europa League by finishing second in the championship round standings behind Slovan Bratislava (Soccerway).
Given how successful his loan stint was, the midfielder is back again with Dunajska this season, with 11 appearances under his belt in all competitions (Transfermarkt), and over the summer he signed a new deal with the Premier League club which keeps him at Molineux until the summer of 2021, which plenty of Wolves fans were pleased about.
This fella is the most talented kid on the books that includes Gibbs White. Seemed to get a bit lost hope this brings him back to his very best.
So buzzing for this!! Was worried his time at the club was coming to an end. He is a talented kid!
Very talented player, good news
Hopefully he gets some Europa League game time
Now back in the international fold for the Republic of Ireland Under-21s, Ronan said it was an easy decision to re-sign on loan in Slovakia to get the game time he needs for his development.
“I’m really enjoying it in Slovakia. I think it’s really important for me at this stage of my career to be getting regular game-time at club level,” Ronan told RTE. “I didn’t feel the need to change really as it went really well last season and the manager backs me so that’s really important for me.
“I feel like I’m getting better and better with more time on the pitch. It’s helped me get in the Under-21 squad as well and it’s been a brilliant year so far. We’re all buzzing for the game, especially with the sell-out so hopefully we can get the result we need.”
